Mujeres Unidas 1, 2, 3 & 4 Group's story

Paula is the coordinator of her group, Mujeres Unidas (United Women) 1, 2, 3 & 4, this group compounded by 20 micro-entrepreuners (women and men) located in the lush, rugged Samana peninsula. She makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their five children.

Paula is excited to be taking her 15th loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loan and grown her business. This businesswomen runs different sales in her business, one is selling sewing machines (used and for domestic uses) and the other sales are coconut oils. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing sewing machines to sell and coconuts to extract oil.

She said that her most difficult challenge has been to raise her children and educate them while she has been working to support her long-term partner. She will use the profits to reinvest and to save for any needs in her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Paula, Isabel, Mariela, Candido, Fidel, Tobias, Rafael, Ana, Leonidas, Tirsa, Alida*, Julio, Irene, Eudocia, Paulina*, Prieta, Confera*, Agustina, Natividad*, Carmen
